Nifty engineering, but the whole Spyder concept (any of the trikes, for that matter, but esp. the Spyder) leaves me cold.

For that kind of money ($16,500 base, up to $28K for the LT), you can buy a nice little convertible (i.e., Miata - $23-30K). Then you have heat, A/C, a real sound system, more storage and much more comfort. And a roof. Which, when retracted, gives you a fair percentage of the 'wind in your face' that the trike does.

I guess I don't get it.
